Next time a city is about to get doomed to destruction and all hell breaks loose, you know the first person to call: Dwayne Johnson, who is capable of stopping anything that comes in his path, including taking on three angry overgrown varmints from wrecking Chicago. If you ask me, it sure sounds like a ...
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the NY Times ScreenTalk series with the cast of Call Me By Your Name, a film that has been making the festival rounds since Sundance ‘17 and is now, finally, about to make its wide release. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is one of, if not the, most beautiful film I have ever seen. If I could afford it, I would buy everyone I know tickets to see this movie just to ensure that no one I care about misses it. It’s THAT good, and I’ve already seen it twice.
The rapid mishmash of action and surprising comedy in Justice League left me wondering about this new tone of the DC Extended Universe. Certain parts of the film, such as the plot and specific characters, even left me slightly saddened by the direction of the film. However, Justice League is still a great film that should be seen if you need to satisfy your inner comic book nerd.
There’s a simple formula to making a soundtrack that’ll be put on repeat. Of course, you need a collection of songs that are great and work together well. But really, you just need to throw together some songs from the ’60s, ’70s, or ’80s and you’ve got a guaranteed great soundtrack. There are three soundtracks that we currently love that just happen to highlight all three of these decades.
Bring It On: Worldwide #Cheersmack finds Destiny (Christine Prosperi) in a bit of a pickle. As the captain of the three-time national championship team “The Rebels,” she has got a lot on her plate between practices, friendships, cheer routines, and enemies. That’s right, being the captain of a widely celebrated cheer team comes at a price. Destiny has enemies around the world and when she and her team are challenged to a global cheer takedown by a new and edgy team called “The Truth,” Destiny realizes that she may be in over her head and in desperate need of a new game plan.
Historical movies based on real events have the tendency to evoke at least one of the following feelings: sad, happy, grateful, thankful, intrigued, or frustrated. There are plenty more to add to the list, but at the end of the day, these movies recount the stories of so many brave (or maybe not so brave) individuals before us.
In the last 15 years, audiences have seen two different Spider-Man film series come and go. So it’s understandable if some may be wary of jumping into a third one with this weekend’s release of Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, the decision to allow Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe has paid off with a wonderful new take on the character.
The right combination of action, drama, and romance with the addition of setting and strong, well-developed, and likeable characters makes Wonder Woman the first truly successful film in the DC Extended Universe. It also reflects a powerful female superhero with a solid moral core. The film tells the story of the Amazonian warrior princess Diana (Gal Gadot) who yearns to defend the world after a pilot, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), washes up on the shores of her home.
The ’80s music nostalgia, the intergalactic action sequences, and the ingeniously comedic banter between characters are some of the few reasons why the first Guardians of the Galaxy was so enjoyable to watch. This second installment touches on the same successful moves while providing a distinct tone that reveals the unique direction. This tone provides more emphasis into the main characters and harps on some of the same moments that were loved from vol. 1. Instead of a heavy focus on action, this film focuses on the story and character development, introduces some dark elements to mix, and yet keeps the humorous elements that made us love the first film.

When the trailer for Amma Asante’s “A United Kingdom” popped up on YouTube as a pre-roll ad, I was captivated by it. Instead of eagerly awaiting the moment I could skip after thirty seconds, I was hooked and immediately added it to the extensive list of ‘movies I need to see’ in my the notes on my phone. So, when an email from Fox Searchlight popped into my inbox inviting me to the New York premiere, I was, quite obviously, psyched.
The Little Prince is about a little girl who discovers a story that teaches her lessons that free her from an oppressive world of mediocrity, and introduces to her a world filled with hope and insights on the importance and beauty of things unseen. Philosophical, I know… But The Little Prince is a loose adaptation of its novel source, which happens to be a critically acclaimed literary masterpiece. The material is very powerful stuff, and this film does its best to capture a message for both adults and children.
